Newspaper Special

Revere’s transformation into a vibrant gateway city under the leadership of Mayor Brian Arrigo will take another major step with the redevelopment of the Global Petroleum site on Route 1A.

Saracen Properties of Waltham and Link Logistics Real Estate of New York have formed a partnership to acquire and redevelop the 44-acre Global Petroleum oil storage facility which is located directly north of the Irving Oil reservoirs.

The new project, called “Trident Logistics Center,” will be a modern, technology-driven warehouse and distribution campus with a focus on responsible development, environmental resilience and sustainability.

The site currently houses 29 aboveground storage tanks which will eventually be cleared to make way for development.

The Trident Logistics Center will be developed in two phases and when fully constructed will consist of two state-of-the-art logistics facilities totaling 668,500 square feet, with associated parking areas.

The project will consist of two phases with a completion date in early 2024 for the first phase and early 2027 for the second phase.

Ted Saraceno, President of Saracen Properties, said, “We are delighted to have the opportunity to clean up the site and provide what we believe is the highest and best use for the property. The replacement of the tankyard with a world-class logistics facility will provide hundreds of jobs for area residents and provide a significant increase in tax revenue for the Town of Revere and its residents. »

Mayor Brian Arrigo added, “Soon the oil tanks on Route 1A will be dismantled and replaced with a state-of-the-art warehouse,” said Mayor Brian Arrigo. “We are excited to see this area cleaned up, which many Revere commuters and residents have been waiting for for a long time.”

Daniel Connaughton, Vice President of Real Estate at Link Logistics Real Estate, said, “Reducing environmental impact is at the heart of our business. We deliver efficient buildings that facilitate our customers’ transition to a low-carbon economy, while prioritizing resilience and helping to create healthier communities.

“We are thrilled to create a new, modern landmark along Route 1A that will serve as a welcome to Revere. By reinvigorating the gateway to the city, the Trident Logistics Center will help the community usher in its next era. »

The project is a “law” project, according to prominent local attorney Gerry D’Ambrosio, the project’s attorney.

Phase 1 of the project will redevelop the northern 22 acres (19 oil tanks) into a 386,800 square foot technology warehouse. The planned start date for work on the site is fall 2022.

Phase 2 will redevelop the rest of the site (the 10 southern oil tanks) into a 281,700 square foot technology warehouse. This phase will begin at the end of 2024 following a sale-leaseback with Global for the southern zone.

The Trident Logistics Center is designed to provide local environmental, economic and community benefits.

Environmental benefits

• The project will provide several significant environmental benefits, including the dismantling and removal of aboveground storage tanks, and the containment of any existing contamination.

• Other important environmental benefits will be improved stormwater management and safeguards against climate change and sea level rise

• Link Logistics Real Estate recently received the 2022 ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year award from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy. Link is the first company in the industrial real estate sector to receive this recognition.

• The Trident Logistics Center, like all Link developments, will be LEED-v4 certified to enhance energy efficiency and reduce carbon emissions.

Link Logistics Real Estate has become widely recognized for its successful efforts to redevelop, repurpose and clean up sites with environmental challenges and transform them into new state-of-the-art logistics facilities that strengthen the local and regional economy.

Economic benefits

• The Trident Logistics Center will bring several economic benefits, one of the most important being the creation of jobs.

The project will generate hundreds of jobs in the construction sector and, at full construction,

The Trident Logistics Center will directly create several hundred permanent jobs for the local community, with the possibility of additional direct employment through temporary/seasonal employment.

The project will also stimulate indirect job creation for nearby businesses and small businesses. From a tax perspective, the site currently generates over $1 million in property taxes annually for the City of Revere. Property developers’ projections estimate that site property taxes will double upon full completion of the Trident Logistics Center.

The City of Revere will also likely benefit from some amount of excise tax revenue from the prospective user.

Community Benefits

• The Trident Logistics Center will bring several benefits to the local community First of all, Link is a long-term property owner, and company officials are excited to develop a lasting relationship with Revere and to be an integral part of the community.

The project will do much to help solve the logistics and supply chain bottlenecks plaguing the Boston area.

Specifically, the project will clean up the entrance to the town of Revere.

Police say they have found new leads in the ongoing investigation, indicating there is a link between the violence in Kanpur and Prayagraj which took place on June 3 and 10 during the remarks against Prophet Muhammad by former BJP spokesperson.

The investigation revealed Prayagraj-based activist Javed Mohammad was in regular contact with a man from the Yateemkhana area of ​​Kanpur, where the violence first erupted, police officials said.

Investigation is ongoing to determine if the alleged conspirators behind the violence in Kanpur and Prayagraj were the same. In Prayagraj, violence erupted in Kareli and Khuldabad areas on June 10.

“We reviewed Javed’s mobile phone call records and found that he was in regular contact with a Kanpur-based man between June 3 and June 10. The duration of calls from both increased after June 3. said Chief Superintendent of Prayagraj Police (SSP) Ajay Kumar.

They spoke for 10 to 15 minutes regularly after June 3, he said, citing the details of the call.

The SSP, however, declined to release details about the Kanpur-based man, adding that he lives in the Yateemkhana area where the violence erupted on June 3.

Action will be taken based on the evidence, he added.

Javed Mohammad was returned to prison after his two-day police custody ended on Sunday.

But Kanpur Deputy Commissioner of Police (JCP), Anand Prakash Tiwari, denied having any information about an investigation by Prayagraj Police into a town resident’s role in the violence.

Kanpur Police Commissioner Vijay Singh Meena could not be contacted.

So far, Prayagraj police have arrested 105 people, including seven minors, in the June 10 violence. They are investigating the role of 21 people whose role was mentioned during the investigation.

Raids are carried out to find them.

Prayagraj Police have declared a reward of 25,000 rupees to the five fugitives, including All India Majilis-e-Ittehad-ul-Muslimeen (AIMIM) leader Shah Alam who is wanted in the case. The other four are Umar Khalid, Corporal Fazal Khan, Ashish Mittal and Zeeshan Rehman.

Prayagraj SSP Kumar, the Kanpur-based suspect, has not yet been named as a defendant by Kanpur Police in the June 3 violence case.

New puzzle for the cops: cybercriminals buy personal data in bulk https://homepagelink.net/new-puzzle-for-the-cops-cybercriminals-buy-personal-data-in-bulk/ Sun, 26 Jun 2022 07:22:06 +0000 https://homepagelink.net/new-puzzle-for-the-cops-cybercriminals-buy-personal-data-in-bulk/ “Dear customer, your account with xxxx has been suspended.

“Dear customer, your account with xxxx has been suspended. Please complete your KYC (know your customer) with this link…”; “Dear user, please update your KYC for your account with this link/number…”; “Dear customer, you have earned reward points worth Rs 5000 in your account xxx…”

These are just some of the mass messages received on thousands of phones every day, sent by scammers waiting for people to click on phishing links and share personal information. But what has exacerbated the headache for law enforcement lately is the proliferation of websites that sell people’s names and numbers in bulk, senior Delhi police officers told The Indian Express. The agents added that the scammers have become proficient in creating similar websites of banks, telecom providers or brands to steal information and siphon off money – between a few thousand and several hundred thousand dollars. – vulnerable people.

In March, Delhi Police’s Cyber ​​Cell arrested 23 people for sending such messages daily and ‘tricked’ people into visiting fake websites under the guise of updating KYC information – for lack of they would “lose” their account at a major public sector bank.

Once a person parted with their personal information online, the money would quickly disappear from their account.

A senior public sector bank official, who did not wish to be named, said: “Last year we had over 500 complaints in November-December. We had to send out alerts on social media, newspapers and on our app. Fraudsters continued to send mass messages asking people to update their KYC or else they would lose their account. We have also reported the matter to the Delhi Police and the Home Ministry. It is very serious. These people pose as bank officials and cheat customers out of hundreds of thousands of rupees. We would never send such messages to our customers.

KPS Malhotra, DCP (Cyber ​​Cell), explained how it works: “The men sent messages en masse with links that allegedly lead to a fake public sector bank app page. The account holder would provide personal information on the fake online banking page and the accused would take that information, log into the original account and siphon money from there.

“It was a pan-Indian network; we had over 100 complaints with us. More than 51 of them were in Delhi. The defendants were arrested at different locations,” the DCP added.

In fact, many FIRs often file hundreds of complaints – last year, for example, Dwarka’s Cyber ​​Cell recorded eight KYC fraud cases, each involving over 500 complainants from across the country.

In the March case, the police found many victims lost up to Rs 1 lakh. According to the police, these gangs operate from different cities in the country – which poses problems of competence for the investigators – and have several modules to manage different tasks.

For example, some men are tasked with creating phishing links, mass texting, and creating bank accounts to transfer the money to, while others work to obtain data on their targets. .

According to Cyber ​​Cell, obtaining victim data is key to the operation. An ACP level officer told The Indian Express that the defendants buy it from websites where the personal details of thousands of people are sold in bulk for as low as Rs 600 and up to Rs 7,000.

The Indian Express connected to some of these websites and saw how easily one could buy data – names, phone numbers and even addresses. The data is differentiated into different categories for “marketing purposes”.

The categories include ‘Students looking for a job’, ‘Seniors’, ‘Delhi-NCR doctors’ and ‘Delhi-NCR car owners’, which allows fraudsters to focus more easily on the group they wanted to target.

The data is available in the form of different files, it is enough to create an account on the sites and to buy it.

A team led by CPA Raman Lamba discovered that the defendants obtained numbers from these websites and regularly sent mass messages.

“They mainly target senior citizens, retired civil servants and frequent buyers. The data of these people is readily available on websites,” an officer said. The Indian Express contacted one of the websites and asked about the data being sold online.

The company, which declined to be named, claimed that details such as name, email ids and phone numbers could be shared and sold as these are categorized as ‘data’. general”. However, data such as credit card details and medical records cannot be shared online as they are “sensitive/personal”.

“There are no laws protecting the sale of general data. Data can be categorized and sold online for marketing purposes. Many brands want their “target audience/customers” and need such data. This data selling business was started to provide data for marketing purposes, but cyber criminals can also use it for illegal purposes… Data is only shared for promotional activities… It is the responsibility of the user,” the company spokesperson said.

Asked how the websites collected this data in the first place, the spokesperson said: “As there are a lot of companies that sell data, so they buy data from each other as needed. However, the original source of the data is unknown. But as far as I know, some data such as B2B company data, doctor data, chemist data is collected from web directory sites where name, address and contact numbers are openly available. And other data can be sold by the companies themselves – for example, I opened an account (with a broker) for trading, and after a few days I start to receive calls from different companies for purposes commercial, so we can believe that the data is obviously sold by the company itself, and when that data is used by those companies, it comes into the open market to be resold by small, medium-sized sellers.

In the event that a fake banking app was created, the accused would send mass messages to thousands of people every day and then wait for people to click on the link.

An officer said that when victims clicked on the link, they were directed to the fake/phishing website, while the accused opened the original website. As the person typed in their username and password, the accused would see it in real time, the officer said.

At this point, an OTP or one-time password would be required for login.

“Since the OTP is a crucial part of the login, the accused would also put an OTP link on the fake site. As soon as the victim types the received OTP on his mobile number, the accused would use it on the original website and would have access to the account,” the officer said.

Moreover, the accused would send more OTPs to continue withdrawing money from the account. On the victim’s mobile/laptop screen, she would see the KYC formalities being completed and the site asking for yet another OTP to complete the process.

“As the victim thinks he is completing his KYC process or registration for reward points, the accused is simply stealing OTPs and withdrawing money from his account,” the officer added.

In one specific case, the defendants were arrested with more than Rs 2 crore. “They started the operation during the pandemic; in fact, many gangs did. We received more than 25 complaints with the same modus operandi. Most of the complainants were 45 and older. One of the complainants, a retired DU professor, was defrauded of Rs 1.7-2 lakh. It was the highest amount.

Rudrapur: Eight months after a concrete bridge collapsed over the Kalyani River near Rudrapur, repair work has yet to start at the site, residents said. The bridge connecting Shiv Nagar with Ravindra Nagar of the headquarters of the American district of Nagar, Rudrapur, served more than 2,000 families and more than 50,000 commuters every day. It collapsed on October 21 last year following heavy rains that caused a flood-like situation in the Terai. Locals built a makeshift bamboo and wooden bridge here and now move daily, risking their lives. Motorists also travel an additional 5 km to reach their destination. As schools are set to open, it would be risky for children to use the makeshift bridge, residents said.
Notably, shortly after the bridge collapsed, several politicians had assured residents to complete the bridge within six months before the rains. However, with work yet to begin, worried residents are preparing to take to the streets.
On Thursday, tired of waiting, people demonstrated against the local deputy and Rudrapur Municipal Corporation (RMC). “More than 50,000 people have used this bridge before. It was directly connected to various settlements in the city, greatly reducing the distance. With the approaching monsoon, the Kalyani River will be full of water, which will make it even more difficult We want construction to start here soon,” said Meena Sharma, former president of RMC.
“We have been calling for the construction of the bridge for seven months. Earlier, authorities said work could not begin as the state was subject to the model code of conduct due to assembly polls. But it has now been three months since the BJP government came to power, but the apathy of local MPs and the RMC has dashed our hopes,” said Shankar Mondol, a local. “On top of that, the Kalyani River has been turned into a sewer with tons of garbage that has not been cleaned up by RMC,” Mondol said. “During the election campaign, the local MP had promised the immediate reconstruction of the bridge, but it turned out to be a farce,” said Tarak Goldaranother place.
Rudrapur MP Shiv Arora assured that a project report for the reconstruction of the bridge has been submitted to the state government and construction works will start soon. The bridge connected Shiv Nagar, Ravindra Nagar, Pantnagar Industrial Area, Kalyani View Colony, Awas Vikas and Civil Lines.

Our industry is defined by the great disruptive products of the past, but maybe it’s time to let them go. Outbrain’s Megan Hourston explains.

Disturbance. It’s what turns no-name startups into global powerhouses and spawns entirely new industries. It’s a quest to find better, more creative ways, and much of what we enjoy these days is rooted in our desire for transformation. We just need to look at companies like Uber and AirBnB to understand what a truly successful disruption can look like.

Of course, the advent of digital advertising has been one of the biggest disruptions to the marketing and advertising industry. But we’ve been riding this wave for more than two decades now, so it’s time to stop thinking of it as new or complex. It is the foundation of a modern marketing plan.

But it is also time to reassess the role that independent media agencies can play in shaping the future.

Banner ads and display ads are a key example of disruption that needs to evolve. Created almost 30 years ago, they have gone from being the shiny new thing that people just had to click on to something that many users actively avoid and even block.

Rather than excluding them from campaigns altogether, we should better understand how we can use the Disruption Principles to add them to our online experience. Trying to grab attention with a massive banner or flashing display ad as consumers scroll past isn’t ideal.

With the precious seconds of attention that brands can attract, we need to ensure that we maximize the impact for our brands. Closing this loop is critical to ensuring marketers get their money’s worth, and this is where a pull strategy can be more useful than a push strategy.

Instead of grabbing someone’s attention by detailing your brand’s products, another approach is to meet their real needs and solve their problems. Invite them to learn more and create your campaigns with relevant, creative and engaging titles.

Pulling rather than pushing is a change of mindset, but it’s necessary to reach today’s ad-weary audience. It used to be that disruption was a case of “strength over finesse,” but it’s the latter that’s now needed to generate true engagement.

This is exactly where independent media agencies, or indies, can come in. It seems like every week there’s a new trend or technology that marketers have to deal with, and it’s precisely this relentless change that makes indies best equipped to deal with it. It’s clearer than ever that we’re not a one-size-fits-all industry.

While agencies of all sizes have a role to play, I believe it’s the freelancers who will lead the change for the simple reason that they’re usually closer to the decision makers at their clients and have the agility to act quickly when the opportunity arises.

Take Kaimera, who has taken an opt-in approach and used Outbrain’s native technology to run campaigns for Sky News Australia for the past six months. The agency used technology that allows it to dynamically pull headlines from its RSS feed, which regularly downloads new ads and headlines directly from the website in real time. This means there is no need to manually change the creative from campaign to campaign.

By changing their approach to this attraction marketing strategy, Kaimera saw their cost per click drop to $0.09, with click-through rates averaging 0.50%.

As competition intensifies in so many digital channels, it’s the agencies and marketers who are willing to be inventive and creative who will find the burgeoning opportunities and find the most effective new ways to speak to new clients.

The need for value for money does not go away.

A real marriage of creativity between a client and an agency also helps to alleviate the pressure of purchasing efficiency. There are many ways to buy media, and each media outlet and vendor specializes in their own offering and, more importantly, with their own measurement criteria.

Centralizing processes and removing as many steps as possible will allow you to get the most out of your campaigns and get the lowest cost per click. Giving consumers the option to opt-in rather than opt-out is key to achieving this true effectiveness and reducing campaign costs.

I also believe that Independent Media Agencies Australia (IMAA) have a huge role to play in helping independents take this next step. Bringing disparate agencies together into a collective voice and creating greater efficiency and a bigger seat at the table has not gone unnoticed in the industry.

When it comes to the relentless pace of progress, we’ll be sure to discover plenty of new ways to find audiences. But when it comes to being one step ahead, use the independent agencies best equipped to handle disruption and turn it into something productive for good.

Streamsong’s new fourth course gets a name and logo with links to the property’s mining days https://homepagelink.net/streamsongs-new-fourth-course-gets-a-name-and-logo-with-links-to-the-propertys-mining-days/ Tue, 21 Jun 2022 09:30:00 +0000 https://homepagelink.net/streamsongs-new-fourth-course-gets-a-name-and-logo-with-links-to-the-propertys-mining-days/ The new golf course at the Streamsong Resort in Florida will be called “The Chain”, in tribute … [+] to equipment found on the property that dates back to the days of mining.

The fourth and upcoming course at the Streamsong Gplf Resort in Central Florida officially bears a name, “The Chain”, which honors the mining equipment that was discovered at the site while Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw were conveying the unique layout.

The Range will be located within walking distance of the Lodge at Streamsong, unlike the resort’s three other popular courses (Red, Blue and Black), and is a short course that can be played in 6, 12 and 18 hole loops. The course will have holes ranging in length from 90 to 300 yards, so it is a mix of what would be considered par 3 and par 4 holes, although the scoreboard does not indicate the by. Instead, large drag chain links will identify the start and end of each tee box, but with no tee markers specified, players are encouraged to choose their starting point and distance on each hole.

The course can be played up to a maximum distance of around 3,000 meters and is intended to take considerably less time than the three championship courses, providing a shorter and faster option next to the main resort accommodation. The namesake ‘chain’ was used long ago to hold a dragline bucket in place when the 16,000 acre site was mined for phosphate ore, leading to the sand formations that make Streamsong’s topography so unique in Florida. As a natural extension, the new short course area will also include a two-acre putting course called “The Bucket” which is approximately twice the size of the existing Gauntlet putting course at Streamsong Black.

“Although small in size, we believe The Chain, when combined with the all but minimal Bucket putting course, has the potential to complement, if not enhance, Streamsong’s reputation for must-have golf,” said said Coore, who also partnered with Crenshaw to build the station’s red course.

The 100-acre property at The Chain is very different in appearance to the other three Streamsong courses, with a landscape of majestic oak trees and lakes as well as sand. Holes also play along and through old mining cuts and Little Payne Creek, the water source from which Streamsong derives the first half of its name.

The first six holes are essentially par 3 holes, with the longest stretching to around 145 metres. The 12-hole loop, meanwhile, features holes ranging from 125 yards to around 300 yards, including a risk-reward penultimate hole that will have a fairway and green flanked by a deep mining cut of a side and the creek on the other.

Although the routing has largely been cleared, construction has yet to begin, making it likely The Chain won’t open at the resort until August 2024.

Emerging peer-reviewed studies have highlighted the occurrence of neuromyelitis optica after COVID-19 vaccinations, suggesting that autoimmune disease may occur as an adverse vaccine event.

Overall study results indicate the onset of neuromyelitis optica (NMO) in healthy individuals within approximately two weeks after Pfizer, Moderna, and AstraZeneca vaccines. In patients already suffering from the disease or a similar autoimmune neurological disease such as multiple sclerosis, an exacerbation of symptoms or a relapse has been observed.

So far, at least six cases of NMO occurring after COVID-19 vaccination have been reported in case studies across the world. Although some people have fully recovered, some have been discharged with long-term medication or with unresolved symptoms.

Neuromyelitis optica is a rare autoimmune disease in which the immune system mistakenly attacks the spinal cord and nerves in the eyes. Although there is no cure, treatment can prevent future relapses that will further damage the nerves.

Although the cause of the disease is unknown, it is usually triggered by an infection or another autoimmune disease. It can affect anyone at any age, although it is more common in women than in men.

The 5-year survival rate for single-attack NMO is 90% if treated, and for recurrent NMO (more than one attack) it is nearly 70%.

Symptoms include pain in the eyes, loss of vision, paralysis, weakness or pain in the arms and legs, bladder and bowel problems, and uncontrollable vomiting and hiccups.

Adverse events are medical events, usually developing within 28 days of vaccination. According to the World Health Organization, “any adverse medical event that follows vaccination”, even if not caused by the vaccine, would be considered an adverse event.

Neuromyelitis optica occurring after the Pfizer vaccine

Two studies, one in Turkey and one in Germany, suggested that the Pfizer vaccination may have been the trigger for NMO disorder. The two affected women developed symptoms of NMO within 24 hours and 23 days, respectively, after receiving the vaccine.

In the Turkish study, a previously healthy 43-year-old woman developed impaired vision 24 hours after the second dose of the Pfizer vaccine.

A month after the treatment, she suffered a second attack, with pain, increased sensation and tingling on the right side of her body, muscle weakness and urinary retention.

Doctors diagnosed him with NMO “likely triggered by administration of the COVID-19 mRNA-BNT162b2 vaccine.” She recovered almost completely and was put on long-term monoclonal antibody treatment.

The German study looked at a 68-year-old woman, who had lived with suspected multiple sclerosis for many years, the main symptom being mild leg paralysis. After earlier receiving tetanus and pneumococcal shots, she had suffered loss of mobility in her legs, which was successfully treated. However, 23 days after receiving the first dose of Pfizer in May 2021, her symptoms were severely exacerbated. She lost the ability to walk and experienced a lack of bladder and bowel control.

The woman refused the second dose of the vaccine and there was no relapse of symptoms.

Neuromyelitis optica occurring after Moderna vaccines

The two Moderna studies conducted in the United States also involved women. The first patient was a healthy 19-year-old; the second was 46 years old with a medical history of vitamin B deficiency. Both showed symptoms within 15 and 2 days of receiving the first dose of the vaccine respectively.

The 19-year-old had severe arm and leg weakness and urinary incontinence after receiving the Moderna vaccine.

After receiving the first dose of the vaccine, the 46-year-old woman suffered from upper and lower extremity weakness, urinary retention and decreased sensation, as well as “constant, stabbing pains, 10 out of 10 in the upper back”. Although his lower extremity weakness and urinary retention had resolved, the report indicated that the diminished sensation may have persisted.

Neuromyelitis optica occurring after AstraZeneca vaccines

In Thailand and Brazil, studies have detailed adverse effects after AstraZeneca vaccines. The Thai study found that a previously healthy 46-year-old woman developed right leg weakness and loss of sensation in the right side ten days after the first dose. Although her leg weakness improved, abnormal sensations persisted.

This latest study looked at a 62-year-old woman, with stable NMO for 8 years, who saw a relapse 7 days after her first dose, experiencing loss of vision in her left eye. His vision recovered in 3 weeks.

The case studies mentioned above are not exhaustive. Studies have also cited Sinovac® and Sputnik V COVID-19 vaccines in cases of NMO occurring after vaccine administration.

The study authors pointed to a need for future research and a “high degree of suspicion” in diagnosis and intervention. As NMO is a rapidly progressing disease, if left untreated, the consequences can be severe, with the possibility of disability and death.

AstraZeneca spokeswoman Sinead Keller told The Epoch Times that “cases of neuromyelitis have been reported infrequently following vaccination,” with no confirmed causal relationship between vaccination and this “extremely rare event.”

“We continue to work with regulators around the world to closely monitor safety information from all available sources as part of our routine monitoring,” Keller wrote in an email on June 16.

Although not all cases found a positive link, the results suggest a possible link between NMO and COVID-19 vaccination.

The Epoch Times has reached out to Pfizer and Moderna for comment.

  • Research also finds young people, people with disabilities and the LGBTQ community are at higher risk of chronic loneliness
  • Ministers from various government departments will launch a renewed effort to tackle loneliness as part of the national recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic

New research published today by the government has identified direct links between chronic loneliness and mental health distress.

The findings, which coincide with the start of Loneliness Awareness Week, analyzed mental health well-being and the impacts of loneliness over an extended period, with findings showing that chronic loneliness played a significant role in the onset and continuation of mental health distress.

The analysis also shows that mental health-related distress may play an important role in the onset and continuation of chronic loneliness. Chronic loneliness is defined as people reporting that they “often” or “always” feel lonely.

This suggests that targeted early intervention may play a greater role in addressing the short-term mental health effects of loneliness.

The Minister for Civil Society and Youth will now bring together ministers from various government departments to push forward a renewed effort to tackle loneliness. The group will develop a delivery plan that builds on this new evidence and sets out new government action on loneliness early next year.

It will build on the 2018 Loneliness Strategy and the government’s work to tackle loneliness during the pandemic through its £750million charity funding scheme.

Civil Society and Youth Minister Nigel Huddleston said:

Loneliness can affect us all and research published today highlights that young people and people with disabilities, as well as those with long-term health conditions, are disproportionately affected by loneliness.

As we begin Loneliness Awareness Week, I encourage everyone to reach out to someone they think may be feeling lonely or isolated.

The government has prioritized tackling loneliness during the pandemic and we will now step up our efforts to protect those most at risk.

Since the launch of the Loneliness Strategy in 2018, the government has continued to take a leadership role around the world, including appointing the first-ever Loneliness Minister. It has teamed up with a range of charity partners to invest more than £50million to help tackle the problem, with funding helping thousands of people connect through the things that matter to them.

Independent research from the National Center for Social Research was compiled from data on more than 35,000 people aged 16 and over from 2013/14 to 2019/20. As part of the study, researchers looked at what types of people were vulnerable to loneliness, whether risk factors for loneliness had changed, the relationship between mental well-being and loneliness, and what factors alleviated loneliness. short term.

The new findings show that in addition to the link between loneliness and mental distress, specific groups of people are more vulnerable to the effects of loneliness:

  • Young people between the ages of 16 and 34 were found to be particularly at risk, with research showing they were at five times the risk of chronic loneliness than those aged 65 or older. Drivers of youth loneliness have been identified as negative social experiences, such as bullying by peers and siblings and arguments with parents.
  • People with disabilities or a long-standing health condition were 2.9 times more likely to experience chronic loneliness and were less likely to emerge from loneliness than people without disabilities.
  • Members of the LGBTQ community were also disproportionately affected, with people who identified as gay or lesbian 1.4 times more likely to be single, and people who identified as bisexual 2.5 times more likely to be alone.
  • Those in the lowest income quintile were 50% more likely to suffer from chronic loneliness than those in the richest quintile.

Mental Health Minister Gillian Keegan said:

Loneliness is a growing problem – and this research underscores the continued need to ensure those who feel lonely can access the resources they need.

We are accelerating the deployment of mental health support teams in schools and expanding community services for adults and young people to ensure that everyone can access support, as well as providing advice and useful resources on the Every Mind Matters website.

We also recently launched a call for evidence to gather opinions from the public to inform a new 10-year mental health plan that will aim to ensure the nation is in positive mental wellbeing.

Dr Sokratis Dinos, Director of Health at the National Center for Social Research (NatCen), said:

This research highlights the significant relationship between loneliness and mental health. It was shown in our study that people with chronic loneliness were almost four times more likely than people without chronic loneliness to be mentally distressed.

Poor mental health can lead to difficulty connecting with others, social withdrawal, and loneliness, while loneliness can also contribute to poor mental health. Our research highlights the benefits of targeted support for people at different life stages and community activities for people with common interests to improve outcomes.

During the pandemic, the government has made tackling loneliness a priority by earmarking loneliness as a specific target category in the government’s £750million charity funding scheme. The government continues to encourage people to ‘get someone out of loneliness’ as part of the Better Health: Every Mind Matters campaign, emphasizing the benefits of social connection this loneliness awareness week.
